Right view

Right view is vast and deep, allowing us to perceive individuals, objects, and situations in relation to their causes and effects, in the context of their interdependence with all other phenomena.  

Right view is most suitably described as direct knowing, unmediated by concepts or elaboration.  

The expression of right view requires the formulation of concepts, which should always be understood as limited, provisional, and subject to situational exceptions.

    Words always get in the way, but are good signposts pointing at That Which We Come To Understand……..

    Is right view a deeper more compassionate version of “oh she’s must be having a hard day”?.. You hear this often from folks, it’s a statement that considers the unknown context of a persons day that may have contributed to them acting out a reckless or harmful behaviour. Right view seems to get at this context in terms of many lives, many years and many influences. And yet somehow cajoules meaning from these thousands of events, actions, sayings, doings, accidents, syncronicites. Is deep view a kind of diagnostic tool, to explain neurosis in people or is it’s purpose to allow the receiver of an action to have the option of compassion towards the actions author?

      Right view certainly can help us to understand others better and not jump to conclusions about their motivations, but it is also a way of seeing reality ‘just as it is’: in the interconnectedness and complexity of what the Buddha called ‘dependent origination’.
